Jonathan has held this role since September 2019 and, until April 2021, he was also Executive Director for HR on a job-share basis.
Jonathan reports to the Chief Operating Officer, and is involved in several projects as well as the implementation of the wider Central Services strategy. Currently he is working on the One Bank Service programme which will replace many older IT systems for HR and Finance with a single, modern and more intuitive system.

After a secondment to the Financial Services Authority (FSA) in 2007, Jonathan returned as our Head of Human Resources.
